Summer Transition Program (STP) is an optional bridge program that is recommended for students from culturally diverse backgrounds, rural and inner-city areas, first generation college students and those who want to enhance their cultural awareness and become fully acclimated to our environment. The purpose of the program is to aid students in making a successful transition from their high school environment to being a student at Lynchburg College.
STP students have a proven record of becoming campus and community leaders as well as having a greater success rate in their academic endeavors. Programming for Summer Transition Program is intentional; each element of the schedule is planned with specific goals in mind.
These goals include:
- To further develop students’ academic competence in a collegiate setting
- To guide participants to the development of social capital
- To establish an environment that promotes diversity and inclusiveness and is free of bias
- To introduce students fully to resources available to ensure their success
Summer Transition Program 2017 takes place August 15-19
